More ways to help

There are so many ways you can make a difference – by making a regular or a one-off donation, joining AmazonSmile, playing our weekly lottery and more.

Making a donation

Donating online: You can donate online here. Your kind donation will be used wherever it is needed most across our three hospitals. It will help us invest in the latest technology, specialist staff, fantastic facilities and patient comforts above and beyond that which NHS funding alone could provide. If you would like your donation used in a particular area of the hospital, just let us know.

Donating by post: You can post a cheque payable to Raise (West Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity) to:

Raise (West Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity)
c/o Watford General Hospital
Vicarage Road
WD18 0BH

Please indicate whether you would like a receipt, and whether you are a UK taxpayer willing to allow us to claim Gift Aid (see below) on your gift.

If you have any questions about making a donation, please call us on 07393 232313.

Join AmazonSmile

If you love shopping on Amazon, then you can raise money for our hospitals while you do it and at no extra cost to you. Just go to and choose ‘West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Charity’ in ‘Pick your own charitable organisation’. Then, every time you shop at Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to us.

Foreign currency and old coins

Please send us any foreign or old currency you have no use for. Even small amounts of coinage have some value, as we can gather it all together and secure enhanced exchange rates.

We will gladly accept the following:

  • any banknotes, current or obsolete, from any country
  • any coins, current or obsolete, from any country
  • medals and similar collectables
  • commemorative coins and sets

Coins can be posted to us at the address above or brought along to the reception area at Watford, Hemel Hempstead or St Alban’s hospital (please clearly mark your package as being for Raise). Alternatively, if you have more than a kilo of coins, please email us at and we’ll make alternative arrangements.
